The home itself has a beautiful kitchen and living room with a nice fireplace to snuggle up to on a cool night.  The views from the house are of Home Rock and Fish Creek Rock. The views are fantastic during different times of day, when the light gleems and creates a picture perfect surrounding.  The history that surrounds this ranch dates back to the late 1800's when Mr. Keyes retired to this ranch on the North side of Fish Creek.  The orginal homesteads were secured by the Keyes and Hawkes families.  Today some of the sheds and the root cellar still remain part of this historical property.  History also states that this land was a point of the historical Overland Trail.  The very dirt road through the property was the Overland Trail Road.  The main house and barns that are on Fish Creek in front of Home Rock were homesteaded by the Hawkes family.  Mr. Hawkes had a passion for stone masonry and built the litte stone shed located next to the garage.  The ranch has excellent potential for a conservation easement for a buyer that would like to benefit financially from protecting the ranch in perpetuity. Or to simply enjoy its beautiful balance of nature, hunting or fishing, recreation and rich history.  For your private tour, contact Dax Hayden at 303.619.6774
